Vicky Pattison has taken to Instagram to hit out at a cruel troll who brought her to tears.
Revealing the nasty comment "controlled her whole day" and made her cry, the former Geordie Shore star wrote a lengthy post alongside a quote that read: “You give life to what you give energy to”.
Beginning her post, Vicky shared: “Yesterday I did something stupid I engaged with someone on social media who wrote something negative about me.

"Now I’m a 33 year old woman & I have been in this industry for 10 years, I understand the ups & downs of both the career I have chosen & also social media- yet I still went & foolishly tried to change a trolls mind. Silly girl.”
She continued: “And the thing is, deep down, I knew I was never going to change her opinion of me.
"Some people are just committed to disliking you- you can do anything you want- be a positive person, be relatable, try & spread joy, be self deprecating, do charity work.. Anything. You will still be the villain in someone’s story.
“A quick glance at that woman’s profile & I see she has a daughter.. & I thought to myself, does she not realise that I am just someone’s daughter too?
"Now I know I am not perfect, but I am trying my best in a world that sometimes scares & confuses me- isn’t that all we can do?”
Opening up about how the comment “engulfed” her and she ended up regretting confronting them, Vicky added: “The worst thing about this stupid comment is that it engulfed me & controlled my entire day- I cried.

“I gave it too much energy, I couldn’t focus on anything else. I desperately trawled through insta looking for comments telling me that I was nice or funny, anything to prove to myself that woman was wrong.
“But the weird thing is- once your mind is subconsciously focused on the negative- you only see more negative. I gave her comment life, & any other negative ones I read along the way. Those comments consumed me & I ruined my own day.
“I’m done trying to ask people to be better or be kind. The fact is misery just loves company & clearly some of us will never learn- but from now on, I refuse to give you my energy.
“Instead I will devote that to the people & things that serve me, that bring me peace. My family, boyfriend, friends, my work & those who support me.”
Vicky has been dating former TOWIE star Ercan Ramadan since 2019 and the pair moved in together nine months after she split from her fiancé John Noble.
The star has been open and honest about her mental health and how trolling has affected her in the past, previously revealing her anxiety was so bad it would make her sick.
“Some days my anxiety’s so bad I throw up before I leave the house,” she admitted.
